Problem 28E

For the vectors and in Fig. E1.24, use a scale drawing to find the magnitude and direction of (a) the vector sum A+B and (b) the vector difference A-B Use your answers to find the magnitude and direction of (c) -A-Band (d) B-A(See also Exercise 1.31 for a different approach.)

Step By Step Solution

Step 1 of 4

(a)

Drawing the vectors to scale:

Scale:2m=1cm

Measuring the magnitude and direction of vector C,

Magnitude of vector C = 9m

Direction of Vector C = 34 degrees from positive x axis.
